We are a member of the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS)
“This society is an international society that was founded in 1966 with 35 members. It has gained recognition as one of the world’s premier spine societies. The SRS has maintained a commitment to research and education in the field of spinal deformities. Strict membership criteria ensure that the individual Fellows support that commitment. Current membership includes over 1,000 of the world’s leading spine surgeons, researchers, physician assistants, and orthotists who are involved in research and treatment of spinal deformities.” http://www.srs.org
Our research team and our study groups have the goal of learning more about scoliosis by studying heredity, growth, structural and biochemical changes in discs and muscles, and tracking changes in the nervous system. Scientists now believe that the changes seen in discs and muscles are a consequence of the disease and not the reason for the disease. Research is also underway to determine the effectiveness of various treatments by understanding the outcomes.
